Status code 416B-0000-3080-0508-8007-2F76 appears when updating

The first thing I would try is to go to system, storage then select hard drive, press left bumper, right bumper, then X, do this twice and then yes to update. This deletes the old update and tries to replace it with the new update. If this fails there is an alternative method - You first need a flash drive/memory stick that has got FAT32 file system (just in case you don't how to find out this info) with drive inserted to laptop/pc go into windows explorer and right click on the memory stick and go to properties you can then view the system type i.e. NTFS, FAT32.

Once sorted go to the Xbox Support website then select Xbox360 - System - System Update then select How To Get A New Xbox 360 Update last option to pick is Copy To A USB Flash Drive.

Save the file to your laptop/PC, once completed unzip the file and copy the folder to the flash drive how it was unzipped, plug the flash drive into the Xbox and switch it off. Once the 360 starts back up it looks at the flash drive and installs the new update. Once completed you can remove the flash drive and carry on playing!!

I didn't find a port in ma laptop in which i can plug n play b'coz it didn't plug in into usb ports

Hi there,
These are the minimum system requirements of the flash drive you bought.
• Computer with a USB port • Latest version of Windows XP, Windows Vista® , Windows 7 • Mac® OS X 10.4, 10.5, 10.6 • Minimum free disk space: 600MB recommended
Any way back to the question, there is a protective plastic clip for the gold contacts have you tried removing it before using, it might be the reason you cant stick it to any USB port. Any way don't lost the cap so it can lessen dirt on the gold contacts.

Hopefully this information helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a TDK 4 gb pendrive .... i formated my pendrive... ma flash lock is missing and ma storage has been reduced to 2gb.... i want to increase ma storage how do i do that..???

FAT32 file system supports only up to 2GB of space, and more likely you have formated the drive as FAT32. When you plug the flash drive in the USB, right click on drive letter associated with the flash drive, select Format and on the next screen under File System select NTFS.

Orange and green light flash

The flashing battery light is an indication that the system is attempting to charge the battery. The orange light indicates a problem charging one of the battery cells. This usually means that the battery either needs to be recalibrated or replaced. To recalibrate the battery just use the system until the battery is dead, then recharge and repeat the process twice, after which time the battery should be recalibrated. If this doesn’t fix the flashing orange light then the battery may need to be replaced.

hope this helps

Usb problems

Due to current (amperage) limits of batteries, most laptops have VERY small current caps on USB ports. Some desktops can have 1-2 amps per USB port, but laptops are often limited to 300 to 500 milliamps. This is sufficient for most memory sticks/pen drives, but many USB devices need much more power than that. For example, external USB-HDD cases for 2.5 inch hard drives will need 100-200 mA ABOVE the rating of the HDD, which is usually 500-750 mA. Few laptops can provide that much current, or will initially provide enough to spin up, but get errors or fail to mount due to lack of power. If your USB device has a secondary power jack, use it with a 5 volt AC power supply with the correct jack polarity and current rating. You can also try a "double harness" USB cable, which plugs into the laptop with TWO USB jacks, and into the USB HDD case with one (the third) jack. This allows TWO USB ports to "double" the available current for the USB device. Best to get the specs on your laptop, see what your USB current limits are, before doing this. If each port is limited to 300 mA and your HDD is 500 mA, you will be OK, but if the HDD is 750 mA, the total of 600 mA is not going to spin up the drive.
